Last year, around June, I was feeling very unwell and went to the GP. My doctor did a routine blood test and called me up saying my Gamma GT levels were around 200 and I then was tested for Hepititis C (I'd been vaccinated against A and B in 2011 before a trip to Africa) and Glandular Fever, all negative. I then went on an exchange to France and doctors there said that there was nothing concerning and some people just have high function results without any issues.
On my return to the UK, I was given two liver function tests, the first showing an improvement (around 110) and the second showing an elevation (I didn't get the exact number). I also had an abdominal ultrasound that showed no issues. I was then advised to abstain from alcohol for 6 to 8 weeks which I've completed and I had another test yesterday. I've been referred to the gastronenterology department at my hospital but because of waiting times, the appointment won't be until the end of January.
I'm just writing to ask if anybody has any idea what the causes of these results could be. I'm 21 years old and I doubt it is alcohol related since I've never been a big drinker. I'm also wondering if I'd be able to drink around New Year. I'm not desperate for a drink but it's sometimes nice to have a beer when I've done with work and also for social reasons- I'm a student.
